  • Referenced by...: Being a Cosgrove Hall cartoon, Avenger Penguins would later be referenced by the studio's other works.
    • In the Fantomcat episode "Great Balls of Fire", Comet Caractacus is named after Dr. Caractacus P. Doom.
    • Jimmy Hibbert would later use his Harry Slime voice (an imitation of Peter Lorre) for Dr. Agon's falcon, Trump, in Lavender Castle.
  • Talking to Himself: The voice actors (and the voice actress) in this series, including Whose Line Is It Anyway? regular Mike McShane and Cosgrove Hall regulars Rob Rackstraw, Jimmy Hibbert and Lorelei King, all provide the main voices. Lampshaded by Doom himself in "A Winter's Tale" when he says "Talking to myself? They'll be saying I'm mad next!"
  • What Could Have Been: The series was originally going to be called "Hell's Penguins", and would have had a fourth penguin called Scoot, who was going to be Marlon's nephew. A pilot was made under this title, but for the series itself, the title was changed because Brian Cosgrove was worried as to how the religious audience in the USA would react. It's unknown why Scoot was removed.
  • Written by Cast Member: Voice actors Jimmy Hibbert and Rob Rackstraw co-wrote some episodes.
